My husband and I recently stayed at The James NoMad prior to flying to Hawaii the following day. We had an exceptional stay and experience at this cozy, safe and secure boutique hotel in the Nomad area of NYC. The location was ideal as the hotel is close to all major public transportation hubs including many subway lines, making all parts of the city easily accessible, not to mention the ease at which the doorman happily hailed a taxi to the airport for us the next morning. Contrary to what we’ve heard about the current state of NYC, the Nomad area was bustling with locals enjoying outside dining and everything felt very safe, even during our evening walk home from dinner. We arrived in the early afternoon to open arms and many smiling faces wholeheartedly welcoming us to the hotel. We have never experienced such a warm and genuine appreciation for choosing a hotel as we did at The James NoMad and it really set the tone for an amazing stay! Upon check-in we were advised of the health and safety protocols which throughout our stay made us feel very safe and secure at all times. During check-in there was no transfer of a credit card which was nice. There were hand sanitizer stations at all elevator banks and scattered throughout the hotels public space which was a great measure. The protocol that gave us the most confidence was that each guest room door is completely sealed after being inspected and sanitized by housekeeping staff. We literally had to peel the seal off to access our room and it felt good knowing that no person had entered the room after it was sanitized. All in all, we had a great stay and want to encourage fellow travelers to stay at The James NoMad and visit the ever-energetic NYC! Read less

My husband was staying here for work for a week so I decided to join him for the last few days of his stay. Pros: 1. Free coffee in the morning - it's not very good but at least it's an option 2.

My husband was staying here for work for a week so I decided to join him for the last few days of his stay. Pros: 1. Free coffee in the morning - it's not very good but at least it's an option 2. The lobby is nice and has a lot of seating. No one was sitting there (probably because of COVID) but I can see it being a nice spot to have your breakfast in the morning during non-COVID times 3. The loveseat is pretty comfy. Perfect if you need to work at the table 4. There's a mini fridge but it is filled with minibar items. However, there is a little but of extra room in there so it can fit some leftovers, if you really need to 5. They provide a couple of face masks at check in Cons: 1. The bathroom is pretty small. There is just enough room for the door to open without hitting the toilet, so if you are closing the door, you have to stand off to the side in order to do so. Overall, the bathroom could use an upgrade 2. The TV is to the side of the bed, which was a bit weird - but at least it swivels 3. There aren't a lot of surfaces to put things but you can use the heater and all of the window ledges Read less
